Jan attended Bretton Hall from 1972 to 1974 specialising in art and training as a teacher. She had previously studied graphic design at the School of Art in Batley, West Yorkshire and worked as a designer and illustrator.
She has worked as an artist for over 40 years, and along the way gained an MA from Leicester Polytechnic. Jan taught in secondary and further education until 2011. Since then she has been practising as an artist and printmaker living and working in Lincolnshire. Her work is influenced by the landscape and nature around her, reflecting the changing seasons.
She travels extensively across the county seeking inspiration in the countryside, along the coast and on both sides of the Humber Estuary. An enthusiastic collector of visual information she records her journeys in sketchbooks, photographs and small paintings in a variety of media.
In her home studio she makes small edition etching, linocut and collagraph prints and experimental monoprint pieces often embellished with stencil work and drawn elements. Some pieces are made into folded or stitched books. An ongoing part of her practice is a range of hand-painted and original print, window-mounted A5 cards.
Jan is a member the Lincolnshire Artists’ Society and has exhibited widely in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire.
